I started taking Decadron (Dexamethasone) yesterday – not my favorite drug. It usually makes me manic and affects my sleep; after all, it is a steroid. Also, one of the side effects is WEIGHT GAIN (shoot me now!).

Hopefully it will give me energy to get some things done around the house, but in this heat, I’ll probably have to resort to other outlets – like incoherent blog postings.

I’m attending a New German Medicine retreat at the Carp Wellness Centre this weekend. It will be interesting to see how steroid-hyperness and sessions on meditation and spirituality mix. I don’t want to share bunk beds (4 to a cabin) with strangers so I’m going to Dianne’s for the 2 nights and Katey will be there during the day. I’m sure Dianne and Brian won’t mind me using their pool at 2 a.m. to work off my steroid agitation… :-)

What I'm grateful for today: My basement 'guest suite'. It was so hot last night that Katey and I slept down there because the temperature was noticeably cooler.

I sure laughed when I saw the picture ... it describes the effects of decadron so well.

Personally I sure hated that drug ... I sure feel for you.
